Advent 2012 : Studies, Crafts and Recipes

Advent Studies Crafts and Recipes 2012

After posing a question on Facebook Monday asking you about your plans for Advent, we thought it would be fun to post about the suggestions you gave us.

We’ve added a few extras and we invite you to leave a comment sharing with us any posts you have about Advent.


  • Last year, we posted about The Jesse Tree, a devotional eBook from Ann Voskamp and Nancy Rodden. Still a favorite!
  • Truth in the Tinsel
  • Buckner Advent Guide
  • 24 Days of Christmas Books – This isn’t so much a study, but it didn’t fit with crafts or recipes so here it sits. Wrap up 24 Christmas books and read one each day.
  • Calendars:
    • Precious Moments
    • Legos
    • DaySpring
  • World still has their older Advent studies listed as well as their new one “Anticipating the King
  • The Thoughtful Christian has several Advent resources available (can be purchased or free with subscription)
  • Faith and Worship offer several Advent Bible Study guides.
  • Vibrant Faith just posted a list of their new Advent studies on their blog. A little bit of something for everyone in the family!
  • Home Educating Family Association’s Professor Carol has a cute Advent workshop this year. Sign up to participate in their online advent calendar.



  • Primal Kitchen has a pretty awesome series on Real Food Advent Recipes (the first one is Coconut Manna Cups!)
